He says “I’ve never sat on an idea. If I get something, I act on it. Business is all about taking the leap. Once you take the leap, then you can think about what’s going to happen next. The larger the vision, the larger the need to pave your path with skill and confidence. But, a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.”

 Message to new entrepreneurs:

To any aspiring entrepreneur, you need to have passion and a drive to make it big. Go out there with so much passion that nobody can stop you. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other people – whether they’re billionaires, millionaires, or aspiring entrepreneurs themselves. They can give you advice and mentorship. As you move forward with your business and your life, look at the “value proposition” when making decisions. Have a plan A, B, and C so that you are never in a state of confusion when something doesn’t go as anticipated. Whether in life or business, plan everything!

Don’t let yourself worry about people who are trying to bring you down. At the end of the day, it’s your life – your story that you have to write, your song that you have to sing, and your dance that you have to dance. Make your business for yourself. You will find a lot of people who will try to bring you down because they can’t do it themselves. Ignore them and move on. Even if you fail, at least you tried. So many other people didn’t take that chance, put themselves out there, and follow their dreams with passion. Always learn from your mistakes and get up the next day implement those lessons to attain success and make it big. Good luck!

Youth Times wish Him Best of Luck for the future.
